text: After I have looked at the village and have taken some photographs of the distant view we settled down in the gaonbura's house. Chingphoi is two thousand six hundred and forty eight feet high and in the middle of the day it was quite hot but not humid. However we were all a bit tired and I fell sound asleep when I stretched out.
